Americans took on less credit card debt in January

There are many reasons why people take on credit card debt and find themselves unable to repay what they have borrowed. For example, someone may experience unexpected financial challenges after being laid off from work or they could have turned to credit cards to deal with medical expenses. Regardless of the reasons why people rack up credit card debt, it is important for borrowers in Tampa and throughout Florida to deal with their credit cards as soon as possible.

Helping those who are struggling with credit card debt

From unemployment to costly medical expenses and unforeseen challenges in life, there are many reasons why people take on debt that they cannot repay. Unfortunately, far too many people in Tampa and throughout Florida are experiencing these difficulties firsthand and have no idea of what should be done next. At the law firm of Timothy J. Sierra, we understand the numerous obstacles that come with burdensome credit card debt and work hard to help ensure that our clients address their debt properly.

Can credit card debt always be discharged in bankruptcy?

There are many kinds of debt, but perhaps the most common amongst all people in the Tampa area, and elsewhere across the country, is credit card debt. Credit card debt is easy to accrue, but can be very difficult to pay off for many people. In fact, some people get into so much credit card debt that they have to consider filing for bankruptcy just to get out from underneath all that debt.

Could credit card rates be rising next year?

The holidays are officially here, which means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. However, one thing that almost everyone has in common when it comes to this time of year is the shopping. The holiday spending frenzy officially kicks off on Black Friday, or in may cases on Thanksgiving Day, and runs right up until the end of the year with all the after-Christmas deals. With all that spending going on many people in the Tampa area will surely be adding to their credit card bills.

Financing in Your 40s

For someone in their 40s, at this point in life they should have all student debt paid off and credit card debt cleared. Life earnings may increase, which means we should be adding more to our savings for the future of not only ourselves but our children or dependents. This should all be a part of financial management in our 40s, along with continuing to grow funds.
